Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindytravels Great Stay in Amsterdam area
I always stay at this Holiday Inn Express in Sloterdijk Station when I am visiting Amsterdam. They are very accommodating. The location is steps from the Metro train so it makes it easy to get around. It is 2 stops from the Airport and 3 stops from Central Station Amsterdam. The staff is friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay memorable. The hotel is clean and quiet. This hotel is a good value. The breakfast is outstanding... I also felt the hotel was safe with appropriate security systems in place. I would strongly recommend this hotel. I travel as a single woman and would never hesitate to book this hotel every time I visit Amsterdam for business or pleasure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spinningned Cheaper than the city!
Hotel's in Amsterdam tend to be on the pricey side, so staying at this hotel was a better bet for me, and the price included breakfast. The Hotel is very well placed for quick access by train to Amsterdam Central (7 mins# and Schiphol airport #10 mins#. The rooms are of a good size and comfortable and I found no noise problems, though I was not on the main #elevated# railway line side of the hotel. The breakfast was of a good standard, not a massive selection but as good as some hotels where you pay extra for this service. The only thing not included is a city tax which is a percentage of the room rate and paid in a separate transaction, but this is Dutch policy and not the fault of the hotel. #Same applied at other hotels in Holland)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by winny2 Staff and locataion are great!
This hotel is really conveniently located. All public transportation is literally right at the front door. The flip side of the coin is that public transportation, especially the trains, cause noise and the windows are not the best for keeping out the noise. The staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all we had a good stay there and would go back again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kathrin13 Great service
Staff were welcoming and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. Only drawback was storage in bedrooms - if you are staying for longer than a couple of days - I was staying eight days and sharing a room - there is little space to store clothes. Bathroom was wonderful - I hate showers normally but this one was fabulous - plenty of room and powerful jet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kpatz72 Very nice hotel
Very nice hotel. The city centre is very easily accessible on either tram or bus and you can get a bus ticket for 24, 48 or 72 hours from the front desk. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as an excellent base to visit Amsterdam.

Of all our stays at Holiday Inns throughout Europe, this was by far, the one that stood out for friendliness of staff. They could not do enough for us and always with a smile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM Great value - spacious and comfortable room
Stayed at the hotel 4 – 6th August; requested a top floor room (views across the station and surrounding area) a couple of days before our arrival and this was allocated on arrival. Very tidy, clean and modern bedroom and shower room – free wi-fi, flat screen tv with BBC1 & BBC2 (not that we watched much), desk and desk chair, easy chair and a very comfortable bed. Excellent continental breakfast (rolls, cheeses, meats, eggs, toast, cereals, fruit etc. etc.) served between 6:30 & 10:00. All the staff were extremely helpful, polite and cheerful and our room was cleaned and tidied thoroughly on a daily basis. Hotel is literally a stones throw from the station and trains appear to run frequently – we did not have to wait for a train more than 15 minutes maximum travelling in either direction and the journey takes only 5 or 6 minutes and is only one stop.
When we flew in we purchased single tickets from Schiphol to Amsterdam Central (having first confirmed that we could break our journey at Sloterdijk to check in at the hotel) for €3.90 each. We then purchased single tickets back to Sloterdijk from Amsterdam Central for €2.10 each. Make sure you have plenty of change as the ticket machines only take Maestro cards and don’t accept notes. Remember to enter ‘Amsterdam Sloterdijk’ into the machines as ‘Sloterdijk’ by itself is not recognised. The following day we bought return tickets for €4.20 each.
Could not work out how the room thermostat worked – we probably should have asked at reception!
Will definitely use this hotel again when returning to Amsterdam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theoiler Very handy to airport and city centre.
The hotel is situated on the train line to city centre and at the end of Tram no. 12 which makes it very convenient to get to and from the airport and the city centre.
Hotel is the usual high standard as you would expect from Holiday Inns.
Breakfast is an excellent selection of the Continental type.
The rooms are very up to date and clean. My only gripe is that the
mattress was way too soft for my liking as I like a firm one. I do not know if you have a choice like you do with the pillows. Room cooling in the very hot weather was not very effective and room got a bit stuffy with the outside temperature in the 30's.
Otherwise .a very nice hotel with very friendly staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by StewartMC It is not in fact air-con - it is more like building climate control
This hotel is in a good position for travelling. You can get there in a few minutes on the train, or in an hour with the metro buses from the airport. The rooms are clean and in good condition. The shower is great. The air-con does not work and that is true for all rooms. It is not in fact air-con - it is more like building climate control. I would not book this hotel in summer. Never again! I would only consider booking there in the cooler months. Would have been 4 stars with working air-con.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ColetteM Great location and friendly staff
Great location - 5 minute train trip into Amsterdam central station and a tram that drops you close to the Van Gogh Museum. We were able to sleep with the windows open as it was quiet at night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but some items ran out as we would come down 30 minutes before the breakfast service ended.
All in all, great if you want to be close to Amsterdam and get a good quiet nights sleep at an affordable rate!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by darcya comfortable basic hotel
The location is great. Easy access next to the Sloterdijk Station, which is a quick 5 min ride from Amsterdam Central or 15 min from the airport. I found the reception to be fantastic, each and every time I approached them, no matter the time. Each person was warm, welcoming and should be commended for their service.
The rooms are basic but nice, clean, and quiet. The tea/coffee in the room was pleasant to have. The wifi worked well. There's no fitness center at the hotel. The elevators are a bit slow and seemed to always want to go down (from reception) before going back up - several of us noticed this, but that was a minor inconvenience. The new noodle dish vending machine in reception was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LawNet Value for money, quiet surrounding
Close to amsterdam city centre. Only 6 minutes by train or 15 minutes by bus (bgv line no.48). Quiet and has a nice breakfast. The room is clean, and there is a tea/coffee making facility in the room. The receptionists are helpful and friendly. The only thing needs improvement is the reduce if the waiting time for an escalator

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spicey777 Holiday Inn Express Stay
We arrived from Canada early in the morning, well before check in time, and much to our delight and surprise, we were given a room. After a night flight with no sleep, this was exactly what we wanted!
We were on our way to meet the ship the following day for a Baltic Cruise.
Not only that, the gal told us to go in and have breakfast. So much fresh food, so many choices, excellent variety of coffee!
Upon arriving at the airport, you take the train, just 2 stops, very short ride and you simply get off right at the hotel.
To go into Central Amsterdam, you take the train, one stop and you are there!
Location, Location, Location!!
Friendly staff, gal who looked after us was awesome...so sorry, I did write your name down and now I cannot find it. However, you will know who I am referring to.
Thanks Holiday Inn for our excellent stay and our first impression of your lovely City.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cartrip80 Good Property
Property is next to, not above station. Station is convenient to downtown via train as well as Schipol via train.
Rooms are basic but nice. There is some train noise but it is not too bad. Internet and breakfast is good. Not much around though so either have a car or be willing to train a bit for night life or food.

The hotel is almost directly at Sloterdijk Station, with direct lines both to the airport and city center, Only 15 minutes on the bus to the Central Station or 5 minutes by train. Very clean and comfortable with helpful and friendly staff. Check in & out was made easy. We enjoyed staying here.

Great hotel, quiet and next to train station so one stop to center city. Great staff but cleaning people need to be retrained. Missed a lot when cleaning the room.
Still, I'd stay there again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aboccan Great location - right next to train and other public transportation
This is a high end Express location and would recommend it to anyone. Like other European locations, it serves drinks and has a limited but appropriate food menu.
One criticism - no workout room....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulM57 Handy to transport, comfortable
First time in Amsterdam, stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our time immensely. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was adequate. Everything was clean and even though right next door to the train station, we were not disturbed by any train noise. Although not able to just walk into the city (need to catch a train/bus/tram), it was handy as we needed to travel by train to 2 other cities while there. Only one restaurant close by, but of course one can eat in the city and then train it to the hotel - 5 minutes. Main drawback was access to the front entrance with heavy bags, lugging them down stairs from the train station. And the entrance is a bit hidden, we needed directions from the train staff. A sign in the station would help. Other than that, enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryH Holiday Inn at Sloterdjik Station in Amsterdam
Very pleasant 3 night stay while visiting Amsterdam last week. The hotel met or exceeded all of my expectations for a Holiday Inn. It is conveniently located on a main rail station only 1 stop from Amsterdam's Central station, and only 10 minutes by train from the airport! Also streetcar 12 stops just across the street, that also goes directly to the center of town.
The breakfast served was better than what could be ordered in most restaurants, and the free wi-fi is another plus.
